Workout of the Day on October 14: Run 5k

Join us on October 14, 2017, to to honor one of York County’s own heros, Chief Wayne W. Ruppert Senior. The inaugural CommUNITY & Cops 5k Run/Walk is being held in the memory of Chief Ruppert, the grandfather of Coach Melony Kearns.

“The purpose of the 5k is to raise funds for The Wayne Ruppert Memorial Scholarship, which was started by my grandmother Gail Ruppert a few years ago,” said Melony. This scholarship provides funds for children to attend Logos Academy, a K-12 school.

Melony feels the race honors her grandfather and represents Logos Academy. “Working with youth was one of my grandfather’s passions as a police officer. It was his way of reaching his community and improving it one child at a time. If he could work with a juvenile and teach them some tough love in a way that showed them how much value they had, if he could reach one life and turn it around, that meant the world to him. Logos has a similar mission as far as improving the lives of the kids in the community.”

Melony is excited the race will honor her grandfather and what he stood for. “I think it’s so great that kids today will be getting the opportunity for a better education experience through Logos because of my pap and his spirit that lives on in his surviving family.”

This race begins and ends at Logos, with the route heading from Logos Academy on W. King Street to the rail trail, then south on the rail trail towards York College, turning around just past the college. There will be a cookout and block party after the race where the police officers will be serving hot dogs.

Right now, 11 CrossFit York athletes are registered and we’re hoping to see the whole community participate since the 5k will be the WOD for the day! Help us support Melony and be a part of this race that’s bigger than just any 5k.

A CerebRun Challenge is designed to unleash you from your stationery life.  No more sitting at a desk or slouching behind the wheel of a car.  A CerebRun Challenge will involve running, climbing, crawling, shouting, swimming, and most importantly, thinking.  But as much fun as sludging through this puzzle-bloated, mental mud run sounds, it is important that it is done safely.  Remember, this is a PHYSICAL CHALLENGE.  Adequate preparation and training are key components to ensure that CerebRunners achieve a great finish and continued success. The next CerebRun Challenge is scheduled for May 10, 2014, in Delta. More details will follow!
